Setting up a Gmail account is easy. You will begin by creating a Google account, and through the fast sign-up process you’ll choose your Gmail account name. In this lesson, we’ll show you ways to line up your Google account for Gmail, add and edit contacts, and edit your mail settings.

How to set up a Gmail account

To create a Gmail address, you’ll first get to create a Google account. Gmail will redirect you to the Google account sign-up page. You’ll need to supply some basic information like your name, birth date, gender, and site. You will also get to choose a reputation for your new Gmail address. Once you create an account, you will be ready to start adding contacts and adjusting your mail settings.

  • To create an account:
  •  Go to www.gmail.com.
  •  Click Create an account.
  •  Clicking create an account link
  •  The sign-up form will appear. Follow the directions by entering the required information.
  •  Filling in the signup form
  •  Next, enter your telephone number to verify your account. Google uses a two-step verification process for your security.
  •  verify phone number
  •  You will receive a text message from Google with a verification code. Enter the code to complete the account verification.

Just like with any online service, it is vital to settle on a robust password—in other words, one that’s difficult for somebody else to guess. For more information, review our lesson on creating strong passwords.

Signing in to your account:

When you first create your Gmail account, you’ll be automatically signed in. Most of the time, however, you will need to check in to your account and sign out when you’re through with it. Signing out is particularly important if you’re employing a shared computer (for example, at a library or office) because it prevents others from viewing your emails.

To sign in to gmail account:

  •  Go to www.gmail.com.
  •  Type your user name (your email address) and password, then click Next.
  •  Signing in

To sign out of gmail account:

  • In the top-right corner of the page, locate the circle that has your first initial (if you’ve already selected an avatar image, it’ll show the image instead). To sign out, click the circle and choose to Sign out.
  • Sign out

Gmail Mail settings:

Occasionally, you’ll want to form adjustments to Gmail’s appearance or behavior. For example, you’ll create a signature or vacation reply, edit your labels, or change the theme. These adjustments are often made up of your mail settings.

  • To access your Gmail account settings:
  •  Click the gear icon within the top-right corner of the page, then select Settings.
  •  Going to mail settings
  •  From here, you’ll click any of the categories at the highest to edit the specified settings.
  •  General settings category

Adding contacts to your gmail account:

Like all major email providers, Gmail allows you to keep an address book of contacts so you do not need to memorize everyone’s email addresses. You can also add other contact information, like phone numbers, birthdays, and physical addresses.
